The Syrian opposition' group backed by Saudi Arabia, the High Negotiations Committee (HNC) will consider the UN's invitation to join resumed Syrian peace talks in Geneva on March 9, HNC spokesman Riyad Agha said Wednesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The HNC will make a final decision based on the situation in the country, HNC spokesman Riyad Agha said Wednesday.

"The HNC will consider the invitation from UN envoy [for Syria Staffan de Mistura] to begin the second round [of talks] on March 9," Agha said, as quoted on the committee's Twitter page.

Russia Hopes Kurds to Join Syria Peace Talks Despite Turkish, Saudi Stance
Talks between the Syrian government and representatives of the country's opposition factions began in Geneva on January 29. On February 3, de Mistura decided to postpone the talks as the parties were unable to reach a compromise on a number of issues. The opposition and government delegations blamed each other for sabotaging of the talks.

Two opposition delegations are taking part in the talks. The High Negotiations Committee (HNC) was created in Saudi Arabia in December and includes representatives of some groups considered to be terrorist organizations by Syria and Russia. The second delegation was created following talks in Moscow and Cairo.
